I joined in the Fat Quarter swap organised by Sew Mama Sew last month and this what I received from my lovely swap partners.
Thank you ladies. It is so nice to receive fabric you probably wouldn’t have chosen yourself, it helps open your eyes to other possibilities. I love the fact that the fabrics all have a red theme.

I am still persevering with the Sunday Brunch Jacket. I had a few issues with the binding – as I have little experience of it and have only ever made one item of clothing before, which meant I attached the binding to the wrong edge of the facing. I couldn’t be bothered to unpick it all, remade some strips, and attached to the correct edge. Then when you attach the facing you have to trim the seam, which meant the ‘mistake’ binding was neatly-ish cut off! All I have to do now is sew up the final sleeve, hem, and make button holes. I had a look on Purl Bee and there is a super (I hope) tutorial for button holes so that should take the pain out of that. I am not sure whether I will get it finished today as I am off to a coffee morning and then a quick dash to Ikea. I don’t want to rush the jacket as I don’t want to make any mistakes as I am so near the end.
